Inspired by the words of Walt Whitman, Scullion will take to the open road this autumn
‘Afoot and light-hearted I take to the open road,
Healthy, free, the world before me,
The long brown path before me leading wherever I choose.’
For 2 years we isolated from each other. Many were anxious and alone.
Throughout these lonesome days, music and songs were a salve and an inspiration.
During this time, Scullion recorded an uplifting and inspirational collection of songs for the head and heart and will take to the highway, collapse distance and bring us back together in the halls, front rooms, back rooms and bar rooms of Ireland.
Their compelling new album, ‘Time Has Made a Change in Me’, will be shared 30th September 2022, coinciding with an album launch tour across the country.

Philip King of Scullion says “Songs shift, change shape and come alive in magical ways when shared live. The electricity generated is palpable and energising. To head out on the road with these songs this Autumn, bring them to life and share them with audiences around the country is going to be a real delight. Can’t wait.”
Formed in the mid-1970’s, Scullion are revered and feted as one of Ireland’s most innovative, original and brilliant live bands. Their upcoming new record emphasises the band’s musical curiosity and like all of the band records, it breaks new ground.
James Joyce, Bob Dylan and Sufjan Stevens are also woven into the DNA of this record, with the inspirational music of Sonny Condell beating at the heart of the thing.
Scullion’s new album “Time Has Made A Change in Me” is due out 30th September 2022. Pre-order the album, and listen to recent singles, here: https://linktr.ee/scullionband
